First there was Luna the cow who jumps fences and now, from Texas, we have Zack the Zebra who also thinks he’s a horse. Owner Sammi Jo Stohler says she decided to train her 6-year old pet zebra to jump because he kept jumping out of his paddock.
I could see Zack was very athletic so I thought I’d try him on some show jumping fences and he loved it
The first step was getting the striped beauty used to having a rider on his back. Once that hurdle was overcome Zack took his first jump over a fence without a second of hesitation. Now he’s clearing fences 2ft and 8inches high.
